A group of Handmaids protested outside of the Golden Globe Awards saying "Silent No More" when it comes to those working in Hollywood who have been abused and silenced.

Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale is up for three nominations at the 75th Annual Golden Globes Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday but the TV show has jumped off the screen to also become a feminist battle cry for women's rights this year. As actors inside the Globes dressed in black to raise awareness for recently announced TIME'S UP movement, the Hollywood Handmaid's group stood silently outside the ceremony.

The Hollywood Handmaids are part of a larger group known as the Handmaid's Coalition and stated on their Facebook page they'll be "Silent No More" when it comes to abuse experienced by those working in Hollywood and the greater entertainment industry.

"Today, we stand alongside our sisters and brothers wearing black on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, to demonstrate the emerging and growing resistance against violence in the workplace and society at large."

The Handmaid's Tale returns for Season 2 this year, blessed be the fruit.
